SC Previews Anne In Jan.

by in View All Posts, December 19th, 2008

Today, I weaseled my way into one of the edit rooms. “Just pretend I’m not here,” I told editor and producer extraordinaires, Jim and Jenny. They’re working on Anne Burrell’s Secrets of a Restaurant Chef. No spoiler here, but come January 17th , you’re in for a treat. Chef Burrell’s grilled pizza episode is sizzling. No major gaffes, other than the overuse of “lovely,” and a few “ums,” which probably won’t make their way to your screens.

The color coordination—all pastels with pink spoon AND rolling pin — is so sweet; you’ll get a rush before she whips out the pizza dough. However, the girly décor doesn’t keep Anne from doing the tough stuff, like opening a bottle of oil with her teeth — or actually, removing the bottle wrapper (that part might get cut).

I dug for dirt on the snappy blonde from my new peeps. I learned about Anne’s sous chef, who’s on Top Chef now, and heard big praise for the steak recipe. Evidently, Anne’s brown sugar-coated steak is pleasing to carnivores and dessert-ivores alike. So nice — Jim’s made it twice.

Before I go, a shout out for Tyler. Saw you the other day in the elevator, Mr. Florence, bundled and sniffly. You’re a trooper!

Until next time, when I visit my new BFF’s editing Sunny on Cooking for Real.
Yours truly,
Secretary Confidential

    I don’t know what I’m more excited about – the fact that you snuck into the edit bays or that Anne Burrell is going to have a pizza episode. Even though I’m from NY – pizza at home is always a challenge for me and I can use all the tips I can get! Next time you make your way into the editing I’d love to know how many hours of footage does it take to make one half-hour episode?

  2. Secretary Confidential, you sizzle! I do hope they keep the bottle biting, top spitting stuff in the show. Makes it more real; something I can relate to. Keep us in the know!

    The thought of grilled pizza sent my salivary glands into overdrive and I could almost smell the yeasty dough rising to meld with it’s delectable toppings . That did it! I’m off to find food and wait for the next peek into the kitchens at FN. Keep them coming.

    Pastel color coordination, not exactly my thing. Opening bottles with her teeth? Now that I’d like to see! Any chance you could smuggle some footage off the cutting room floor??
